St John's College
Ranked #15 of 18 Hotels in Durham
Reviewed 24 June 2013

With Durham Cathedral across the Bailey, and the river Wear at the back, what better location could one ask for? Whether you want to study, sight-see, or for quiet contemplation, St John's College is ideal. Breakfasts are good. Your room key should enable you to access the library. Staff are helpful, Students, if they happen to be around, are usually nice.

Room Tip: I usually ask for a room in Cruddas House.

Reviewed 19 July 2009

The rooms were large, roomy, and plenty warm enough. There was plenty of literature about the area (I hadn't realised Durham was so small, I only had about 2 hours to see it, and saw what I really wanted to see as we were in such a good location, almost next to the Cathedral), housekeeping was good - there was even a 'personal bathmat' [shared bathrooms a bit of a pain re timings, but otherwise fine]! Food was excellent - was stuffed for 3 days! Drinks bar nice, conference facilities good, and internet available in certain areas on a password. If you're heading up here from the train station, look out for the Cathedral Bus (only 50p, saves you a VERY steep climb), and leave plenty of time to get back on it...
